A Good Idea
Dash cams are small cameras mounted on the dashboard or windshield of a vehicle which record video footage of the road ahead. They were initially used mostly by professional drivers, such as taxi or truck drivers, but have become increasingly popular in the general population.
Dash cams provide solid evidence in case of accidents or disputes.
Accidents happen unexpectedly, and it can be difficult to determine who is at fault. In such cases, having a reliable video recording of the incident can save you time, money, and frustration. Whether it's a minor fender bender or a major collision, the footage from your dash cam can provide irrefutable evidence, allowing insurance companies and law enforcement to accurately assess the situation.

Myth vs Realty
Myth: It's more fuel-efficient to keep the windows down rather than using the air conditioning.
Reality: This myth is only partially true. At lower speeds, having the windows down can be more fuel-efficient. However, at higher speeds, the increased wind resistance from the open windows can actually reduce fuel efficiency more than using the air conditioning.
Myth: Using premium gasoline improves fuel efficiency in all vehicles.
Reality: Premium gasoline is designed for high-performance or luxury vehicles that require higher octane ratings. For regular cars that don't specifically require premium fuel, there is usually no significant benefit in terms of fuel efficiency or engine performance.
Myth: Filling up your gas tank in the morning when it's cooler will give you more fuel.
Reality: The temperature outside does not affect the actual amount of fuel you pump into your tank. Fuel is measured by volume, not weight or density, so filling up in the morning or evening won't result in more gas.
